tympanoparotid fascia

Darryl J Hodgkinson
Over a 5-year period, my technique of approaching and modifying the aging neck has changed from direct suturing of the medial platysma bands and strong posterior traction of the platysma to superior elevation of the posterior platysma and strong fixation to the tympanoparotid fascia. When indicated, redundant anterior platysmal bands are resected instead of approximated. Evaluation of these anterior bands preoperatively for thickness and degree of descent allows more precise decision-making regarding the need to resect redundant and excessively thick or long anterior platysmal bands...

The aim of this study is to elucidate anatomical detail of the tympanoparotid fascia (TPF), deployed anteroinferiorly to the tragus, in relation to neck lift and platysmaplasty. Forty-one hemifaces of 25 Korean adult cadavers (age range: 43-101 years, 19 males and 6 females) were used for the study. Thirty-seven were dissected. Twenty-one were used for tension measurement and 4 for the histologic study. Tympanoparotid fascia was found in almost 36 hemifaces (100%). It was white-colored dense connective layer anteroinferior to tragus...

BACKGROUND: The authors developed a technique for the treatment of the cervical area during face lifts. The authors called this technique platysma suspension and platysmaplasty rather than plication. METHODS: After an anatomical study on 10 corpses on which the authors tested the various platysma suspension techniques, they carried out platysma suspension associated with platysmaplasty in 30 patients. RESULTS: This technique consists of suspending the free edge of the platysma muscle and fixing it to a resistant tissue close to the earlobe (Loré's fascia or tympanoparotid fascia)...
